[draft] Proposed answer to DanC's comment on untested hooks

Original comment:

As a response to the proposal, the QA Working Group decided to include
in its Good Practice regarding extensibility mechanisms a technique on
this topic:
   When designing for extensibility, it can get complicated. Points to
   consider that can affect design decisions include, but are definitely
   not limited to, the following topics [...]
   * Avoid "untested hooks": if an extensibility mechanism is defined,
     make sure it is well tested during the implementation phase;
     experience has shown that untested extensibility just doesn't work
